The Arts Society Isle of Man runs a programme of heritage volunteering

IOM DFAS Heritage Volunteers Report 2015-16

A second project involves a group of volunteers who have begun to sort, catalogue and clean a library of approximately 1,300 18th and 19th Century books at Milntown. Following training at The Arts Society in the basics of book conservation, this commenced in June and is making excellent progress. The books have been sorted and catalogued and volunteers are well motivated to continue with the next stage.

A further project to clean the parts of a glass chandelier has now been identified and is scheduled to be carried out in the autumn of 2016.
